Shooting at Studio GTC with Misty

Misty – Canon 5D Mark II, 70-200 2.8L IS – Gridded softbox above,
Parabolic 60′ Umbrella left, and Gridded spot right.

A really cool thing about the photography program at Gwinnett Tech is that we have a huge studio available to shoot in.  How huge is it?  Well on one side we are building a pretty elaborate holiday set for our Holiday Portraits (Link up soon), but it’s still big enough to shoot in the others side.

Ian and I took advantage of the studio today in our late lab.  Setting up some of my Norman lights we modified it with some of my favorite modifiers included a gridded beauty dish, a gridded soft-box, and a gridded spot light.

Interested in learning more? Check out this cool blog that explains the affects of modifiers on a light.  This is a great post also.

Of course with awesome light, you need awesome models.  Aglae (The MOTM) modeled for Ian, where aspiring model and pretty cool chica Misty modeled for me.  Check out some of the shots below, and a quick caption of how they were taken.

It was really nice to wipe the dust of an old favorite lens of mine, the Canon 85 1.2L II.  It’s been a while since I’ve used it (it’s mainly a wedding lens) and it reminded me of the old magic.
